The Midtown History Project, of which these oral histories are a component, was initiated by the Regional Transportation Commission of Washoe County (RTC) in 2015 as part of its Virginia Street Bus RAPID Transit Extension Project. That broader RAPID project aims to create connectivity between the University of Nevada, Reno, downtown Reno, and Midtown, encourage economic development, enhance safety, and improve livability in the Virginia Street corridor. Its primary transit-oriented elements include connecting RAPID to the University, improving safety for all modes of transportation, correcting ADA sidewalk deficiencies, and improving traffic operations. These oral histories provide insight into this project and the history of Reno transit systems.
